We have been collecting information and market figures on pipes and fittings for over 50 years. We have followed the development of PEX and PE-RT pipes for panel heating, among others, and have seen the triumph of multilayer composite pipes for hot and cold water installations.
In our industry service we inform up-to-date, in short form and without advertising everything worth knowing about pipes and fittings with focus on building services, but also about all other fields of application to pipes and fittings.
In our KWD market reports we focus on the consumption volumes in Europe as well as on the production volumes worldwide of pipes and fittings in building services.
